    This seems rather strange as a VM-Host Affinity rule will satisfy the requirements laid out in the question. The doc does say that both groups need to be created but my logic says that it is the VM-Host Affinity that is specific to preventing a VM from being moved to a specific Host Group?

  2. Rich says:

    Another extremely poor question:

    The question states: “Which vSphere feature satisfies this requirement?”

    The correct answer is: “None of the above”

    DRS Host groups will NOT satisfy this requirement. To satisfy this requirement would be:

    1. DRS Host groups
    2. DRS VM Groups
    3. A DRS VM-Host Affinity Rule

    Without 2 & 3, DRS Host groups would not satisfy the requirement.
